Pretty awesome to see VGchartz releasing the sales data for the consoles just 1 week out, it's crazy to think that there was a time when the numbers were 3-6 months delayed... it's a damn shame however that the majority of the people who were complaining that the delays were so severe back then... are all gone now.
On the topic of the sales though, it's pretty locked in that X1 sales each week are 150k below the Switch, which means next week could see a boost of the X1 up to the PS4 figures! however it does mean that if the Switch were to suffer a sub 150k week... that people will be returning X1's to shops faster than they're selling to create the first ever negative sales week on here lol.
It is nice to see people happy with the hardware figures being more up to date than they used to be. I do remember they were months behind as well. It was nice IOI handed over the reins to the team, so we can now keep things more up to date.
Aye Trunks it's really great to see, so often I would be talking with friends about console sales and bring up here or numbers of things going on with how popular the PS4 was to the X1 but then show a picture of the sales data from a few months back and would always get the same thing of "well... that was back in Feb what are they like now? the X1 could be doing better" but having sales based in the last week means you can directly talk about sales and have numbers here to back up how each machine is doing right now. Makes this site so much easier to recommend to use for things like this however.... here in Ireland we still get some crazy bad adverts which means mobile browsing just isn't a thing anyone can really do here, there are videos which play and have no means to close the window without clicking into it and then going to the website of the advertiser, knowing how bad they are it makes it a caveat for telling people to come here, always has to be (but not on a mobile phone).
It's a little bit of a shame that software sales now only really work as a retrospective or by going on the press releases of the publishers but those things are often just fluff pieces such as activision not being happy with 10million sales for their latest call of duty or a tiny indie publisher having creamed their pants at making it to 200k sales. They're cool articles but really expectations have to reach either super high or super low to draw out a statement regarding software sales.
as others echoed in here, Great work though! I would tip my hat if I was wearing one but it's 30degree's and it's lucky if you find me wearing pants!
